DISCLAIMER: NeverBoxer is an advanced ISBoxer configuration. Although much effort has been made to make the config as plug-and-play as possible, you may find it challenging to modify it as a new ISBoxer user. It is *HIGHLY* recommended that you read the installation and configuration portions of the guide below carefully, as it details step-by-step, how to install, configure and use NeverBoxer properly. Failure to do so, will waste valuable multi-boxing time at the expense of figuring out how to troubleshoot your character sets and configuration.

Part 1 - What is NeverBoxer?
__________________________________________________________

NeverBoxer was specifically made to help new ISBoxer users to multi-box Neverwinter in the easiest manner possible and providing a rich feature-set while minimizing the amount of configuration required. It is the culmination of well over a hundred hours of feature-building, keymap coding and troubleshooting. It's unfortunate that Neverwinter Online has such a 'awkward' set of macroing features, as this makes multi-boxing this particular game challenging, particularly for a new ISBoxer user who just wants to focus on multi-boxing. I say this because not everyone enjoys building ISBoxer configurations since they can require a substantial outlay of valuable gaming time. I've made NeverBoxer available to you as-is to enable you to enjoy multi-boxing without having to start from the beginning - my only request is that if you make use any part of this configuration, to please credit me for my work. To aid those wanting to learn about the configuration, all code has been completely documented and sub-organized within key maps. I sincerely hope you enjoy the fruit of my labor and please make sure to leave feedback to let me know how improvements can be made.

Well, there are essentially 3 teams. Team 1, 2 and 3 (by default - all of your party). You have an Action Group for each of them and you have movement keys to place them where you want and separate keys to mark their targets. When you attack, they fire on the selected targets from that location (unless they are melee at which point they close with the target). I use this alot when I want to clear a room without getting swarmed - just set two teams up to attack two separate targets and use my main to engage a third... usually all 3 targets go down about the same speed and then you just quickly focus fire down any remaining threats with team 3 (everyone). This is best for PVE, but in PvP you could really suprise someone with an ambush if your characters were positioned well.
I could see this being useful with maybe 1-3 in a party focused on the Boss with the others focused on the Adds. The key would be how to rapidly shift back and forth from split targeting to single targeting...

Maybe in the 1.0 documentation give an example of the keys sequences to do this as well as how to switch back to Focus Fire back on the same target when appropriate. If that is too detailed or doesn't make sense in the guide maybe make a separate thread & put a link to it in the "Part 5 - NeverBoxer Knowledge Resources" section.

Looking forward for the full release!

EDIT: I do see the portions talking about extra mouse buttons. Not sure I understand how to switch between regular targeting mode to the advanced mode and how to put slots in/out of groups.
•Mouse 4 - Fire Team 1 Target Selection: Marks target for use by Fire Team 1.
•Mouse 5 - Fire Team 2 Target Selection: Marks target for use by Fire Team 2.
•Mouse 3 - Fire Team 3 Target Selection: Marks target for use by Fire Team 3.

Re: DOWNLOAD: NeverBoxer (V1.0) Config for ISBoxer & Neverwinter

I'm very new to ISBoxer (1st day of 7 day trial). I've been fighting with it for about 12 hours. I started with the KISS duo config and started adding more slots. I'm trying to get a 4 slot team working. Was wondering how difficult it would be to modify NeverBoxer for a 4 man group instead of a 5 man?

Should be straight forward... The only thing is that you wont be able to use the Party Inventory as is - you'll just have to turn it off by removing the hotkey from the keymap (Shift+I). Just download the beta (currently version .9a), make sure to read the guide and follow it explicitly, making sure to create your characters, then the character sets just as it explains. Then configure the Neverwinter launcher as in the guide and at that point start tweaking... If you wont be running at 1920x1200 resolution you'll need to change the initialization setting (also explained in the guide).

Give it a try and let me know how things go. Version 1.0 won't be out until 1 August, but the beta is just as good without a few bells and whistles.

Should be straight forward... ... Give it a try and let me know how things go. ...
Welcome and wishing you success. Yes I agree you should be able to run NeverBoxer with less than 5 characters. I ran NeverBoxer version's 0.6, 0.8, & 0.9a with my Duo first before starting to level my 5man group with it.

The biggest issue I had was that my binds did not (and still do not) auto-load but also being a KISS user for my duo previously I am able to load my binds manually without much issue. In general loading the Binds is a one time process per slot unless you change the binds then you will have to unbind & re-load them to see the changes. In general the steps for me in game at the console window per slot were/are:

/clear
/Unbind_all
/bind_load_file isboxer-[Character Set Name]-[Character Name]-binds.txt

Note: '/clear' will clear chat logs so you can focus on new messages;

Note: '/Unbind_all' will clear all binds you have made or loaded. Very important to clear your previous binds if you have previously loaded binds and have made changes;

Note: '/bind_load_file isboxer-[Character Set Name]-[Character Name]-binds.txt' In each slot game client console window will load your new binding and this seems Persistent across re-boots of the game client &/or PC; You should only need to redo this if you change your bindings (recommend unbinding them first via unbind_all). This file should be located under your ...Cryptic Studios\Neverwinter\Live folder.


Please let us know if you try NeverBoxer and if so how it goes. Curious also if your binds auto-load or if you had to manually load them.

EDIT: As a side note if you are already doing 4 charaters I recommend doing 5 characters if you can. For me at least it is a pain to re-level a new group 1-60 after doing my duo. In hindsight I wish I had stopped to figure out my performance issues and be able to run 5 from the start rather than just doing my duo. The duo GF+DC was easy/great to level but once you get to 60 there really isn't much you can do with a Duo as pretty much the focus is on 5mans (and they are very difficult for a boxer). If the reason you are doing 4 clients instead of 5 is because of Performance, I highly recommend reviewing the following:

- Neverwinter ISBoxer Performance Optimization Guide: viewtopic.php?f=45&t=4165
- Neverwinter Graphics Settings Guide: viewtopic.php?f=45&t=4387
- TWEAK: How to get more SLOT1 FPS in Neverwinter: viewtopic.php?f=45&t=4388

Note: I believe the rendersize adjustment discussed in the last thread above is a planned feature in 1.0 but isn't in 0.9a which the highest release currently downloadable. In the tweak thread are two additional adjustments I used (in addition to doing everything in the first 2 links) to get the final gains needed to allow my laptop to run a full 5 clients with decent performance & beauty in the main Foreground window (I wanted my main Foreground running at a full 1920x1200 with high settings).

...

I can't give you the pastebin because the xml exceed's pastebins maximum file size of 500 KB :roll:
I would first make sure both ISBoxer & Innerspace are fully updated. I would close both and reopen both to make sure all updates are in place (ISBoxer you may need to click on "Help>About ISBoxer Toolkit". After you believe both are fully up-to-date I would then reboot windows and make sure both restart from scratch/clean with no updates.

If you are still having the same issue after doing the above my thought would be to start a new thread in this forum labeled something like 'Unable to export NV 0.9a to Innerspace due to error ...

I would then put the essential info (versions of ISboxer, Innerspace, Windows, etc) into the first post and then try to post the XML into the second post (may be huge but maybe the Forum will accept it where PasteBin won't....

I wouldn't paste it into this thread as I have seen how with even a much smaller XML I can really muck up a thread and make it hard to read...

First line says there's an invald character in the field. Check the Neverwinter Launcher and double-check that you are using this text:

/bind_load_file isboxer-binds.txt

Hopefully that helps...

Re: DOWNLOAD: NeverBoxer (V1.0) Config for ISBoxer & Neverwinter

If none of those suggestions work, I forgot that you can upload your ISBoxer config as an attachment to your post so that should save from having to paste a huge XML.

To share your configuration via file attachment (your account names will not be censored):
1. Save your ISBoxer Profile -- usually to the default location;

2a. If you used Save and saved your ISBoxer profile to the default location, attach the file ISBoxerToolkitProfile.XML from your Inner Space folder;
2b. If you used Save As and saved your ISBoxer profile to a custom location, attach the file you saved;

3. On the bottom of your post click on the "Upload attachment" tab and browse to the File and then Add the file & then submit to post your reply with attachment;

More info from this thread (I added step 3): viewtopic.php?f=45&t=13
